Our family of 4 including 2 kids, 10 & 12, stayed at this great place for six nights and couldn't be happier. The condo itself is well appointed, clean, and modern. It's located on Dover Beach, and the view from the unit is fantastic. The location is great. It is at the end of St. Lawrence Gap so it's quiet, but within easy walking distance to restaurants and nightlife in the Gap. There is a grocery store for all your necessities less than a block away to the right as you exit the gate

We hung around the beach the first day, had lunch at the grill/bar next to the condo at Dover Beach Park, and had dinner nearby. On the 2nd day, we walked across the street to rent a car (Express Rent-a-Car) and explored the island. A rental GPS ($B10/day) is recommended. We drove to Browne's Beach, Crane Beach, Bathsheba, and even hung around local beaches at Brightons and Brandon. All the beaches I just mentioned are beautiful, and I would rate Dover Beach (right outsite the condo) the best. I think Crane Beach is overrated. Browne's Beach is expansive, beautiful, but didn't feel exclusive; you can see the boats and the Hilton.

We booked a 5 hour catamaran trip through Monica whom met us when we first arrived to introduce the condo basics. This 10am-3pm cruise is recommended for snorkeling to see a whole bunch of fishes and TURTLES. It made 2 stops for snorkeling, and 1 stop for a beach somewhere in the west coast. Lunch and drinks were included which we thought were very reasonable. By the way, for a family of 4 like ours, expect a minimum of U$50 per meal. Don't expect this minimum at Tapas or Pieces.

We had wonderful dinners at Tapas and Piesce. Both have water views, great services, and very good food. However; we did break down and had KFC (close to Tapas) one evening. For lunch, our most memorable was The Round House on the east coast. We sat high above the cliff looking down Bathsheba Park. This luncheon was a great change of scenery.

In conclusion, Jane gave us a great recommendation from all the lodging options that we had. She was on the spot for what we were looking for, and we appreaciated that. She keeps a list of things-to-do in the unit. We did just that, and had a wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted to hear that you took a catamaran cruise to snorkel with our beautiful sea turtles. This is surely in the Top Five of Things to Do here in Barbados. It's lots of fun for the whole family. I'm impressed that you rented a car to explore and ended up having lunch at Round House on the east coast, in Bathsheba. Thank you for renting from me and for your mention of the stunning views from your apartment, #117 Sapphire Beach Condos on beautiful Dover Beach. Happy travels and I hope we see you again in Barbados. Jane Shattuck

This was our 2nd trip to Barbados and our 1st stay in this wonderful condo. It has everything needed for the perfect home away from home feeling. The beds are comfortable, living room is cozy and the outside dining area is great. We made our breakfasts and lunches in the condo and enjoyed the ocean with our meals.The pool is amazing and the beach is just steps away. There are great restaurants within walking distance and the Bajan food being sold by locals on the streets is nothing short of delicious. We will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review of 117 Sapphire Beach Condos. I'm delighted to hear you and your family had a wonderful second vacation in Barbados at this beautiful new condo.

Dover Beach, where the condo is located, is one of the prettiest south coast beaches on the island and in the heart of the St Lawrence Gap and restaurant row, so great for young families like yours.

Happy travels and many thanks,
Jane Shattuck

My family and I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful condo in early January 2012. From the moment we entered the apartment, we were blown away. The decor is amazing and the stunning Caribbean and beach are right outside. The condo is located on the south coast of the island in Barbados on Dover Beach.

The apartment is on two levels. My husband and I took the king bedroom upstairs (with private bathroom) and our two teenagers took the downstairs bedroom with two twins (and their own bathroom). Both bedrooms have their own TV. There are three patios in the apartment: one off the king bedroom; another outside the downstairs bedroom which takes you to the pools and Dover Beach; and a third off the living room overlooking the beach and sea and beautiful grounds of these condos. The third has dining and is very comfortable for relaxing; we spent a lot of time here, particularly early mornings and sunset and evening time.

I liked the location of this apartment because it's away from the busyness of St Lawrence Gap but it's near enough that we could walk to many really good restaurants (Waterside is one we really especially enjoyed and recommend highly).

Dover Beach is outstanding. Jane (who manages the property and rented it to us) told us we'd love it and we really, really did. I was able to do my morning walks for exercise and the family enjoyed playing in the sea and sunning ourselves (you can rent umbrellas and chairs from a vendor on the beach very reasonably).

We really made the apartment our own during our stay ... We cooked in the first-class kitchen, lounged, slept like babies, got suntanned, and celebrated the new year the best way I could possibly imagine. I could not recommend this condo more highly. We're already talking about our next visit to Barbados and will stay nowhere other than this elegant villa on the beach.
